8:50 A.M. UPDATE: All trains on the Camden and Brunswick lines are running an hour or more late in both directions due to weather and switch problems, according to the Maryland Transit Administration. The Penn line trains are operating on time.
7:45 A.M. UPDATE: All MARC trains are running between 10 and 60 minutes late due to weather, switches and other train-related issues, the Maryland Transit Administration reported.
ORIGINAL POST: MARC is running a limited "S" schedule today. But trains are seeing further delays and issues this morning. Owing to weather conditions and other train congestion, delays of 10 to 30 minutes should be expected on all three train lines, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.
Other hiccups: Camden train 841 is running 30 to 35 minutes behind due to signal problems at St. Denis... Penn train 400 stopped just south of New Carrollton due to mechanical problems earlier this morning... Brunswick line train from Frederick this morning was delayed at least 35 minutes due to a switch issue outside of Frederick (that's on top of being 15 minutes late for the original pickup before the 35 minute delay).
And a note for passengers traveling from Perryville, Aberdeen and Edgewood -- Amtrak train 151 has been canceled for today. Amtrak train 111 will make those three MARC stops about 20 minutes later than train 151 would have. (If you want to check the status of the train, use Wilmington as the departure station since these stops aren't regularly scheduled for this train.)
